What’s in my February Glossybox?

Glossybox Feb 2013

The theme of February’s Glossybox was International Style.  Let’s take a look at what it contained!


Da Vinci Shimmer Powder - This versatile shimmering mineral powder is one of America’s best kept beauty secrets. Made from the highest quality ingredients, it gives your face a subtle glow when you apply with an eye shadow or blush brush as an under eyebrow or cheek highlighter.

This is actually a gorgeous product, though I was initially worried when I realized there was no sifter in the package!  Hopefully I don’t spill it all over myself.  I am not very skilled in applying loose eyeshadow, but this one is pretty enough to make me want to try again.

BVLGARI Eau Parfumee au the blanc SoapCalming, serene and intimate, it is a luxuriously elegant expression of sensory pleasure. The Eau Parfumée au thé blanc notes in a soft and rich lathering soap for men and women, that cleanses the skin while hydrating it. 

I am already a fan of Bvlgari perfumes, and I think the soap will be a nice way to try this scent!

Evologie eSystem Duo Pack Intensive Blemish Serum & Stay Clear Cream - EVOLOGIE® INTENSIVE BLEMISH SERUM: Doctor developed, patent pending, formulation deeply penetrates the skin to quickly clear blemishes at the source. Prevents and removes unsightly spots caused by acne. EVOLOGIE®’s YS3 COMPLEX® penetrating system delivers natural ingredients rapidly, deep below the skin's surface to where they are needed most.  STAY CLEAR CREAM : Intensifies your skin's healing power to prevent breakouts and keep your skin clear and looking great. Reduces the appearance of spots and post acne scars. Moisturizers and antioxidants keep your skin protected and balanced. EVOLOGIE®’s YS3 COMPLEX® increases blood flow to nourish and heal skin. Keeps skin hydrated by reducing Trans-Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL). 

This had could not arrived at a better time, as I have been experiences more than normal breakouts this winter.  I don’t know how much I will be able to judge it on 0.17 fluid ounces though!


LiSi Color Glaze Lip Gloss - Exclusively available at one of our favorite New York beauty boutiques, this lip gloss is the perfect product to punch up your look. With a semi-sheer formula that is rich with shine and features a delectable scent, the gloss is perfect to layer over your lipstick for a glamorous pout.

I judge lip gloss differently than most people.  While some care first how it looks, I care how it feels and smells!  This slightly sticky but not gritty gloss smells like red rope licorice.  Which may offend some people but I find myself strangely drawn to the smell!  I like the sheer wash of color as well, as I don’t like when you have to use a mirror just to apply gloss.

Nail Rock Nail Wraps in Metallic Moon - Take a walk on the wild side and embellish your nails with these fashion forward nail wraps designed to last up to 10 days. With no chipping or drying time, no wonder it is the current favorite of beauty bloggers everywhere.

I am not a huge fan of nail “wraps” - I much prefer polish strips, but I am excited to finally wear a perfectly drown metallic moon! 

I must say that this month’s box really intrigued me.  It was definitely worth the $21 price tag as I received three full size products and two sample sized products.  The full size products alone were worth $30!  And the soap is not full size, it is very large, and is in a scent I actually want to use!
